    Yay, finally a date. I noticed the ad during The Project tonight finally gave a date. Looking forward to it. Hope the judges are in a better mood this year, last year they were a bit grumpy sometimes.

  2. Fantastic!

    Any word if the Sun-Thur (incl.) will be regular? I’m guessing we’ll only be getting it the first week to get through the top 50? I really missed the ‘masterclass’ episodes from previous seasons, so hoping it or something similar will make an appearance this year!

      • Cheers.

        Hopefully it might even go back to weekly (like…2013?). I really like the direction they’ve gone over the past year especially — much more positive and pleasant to watch. As entertaining as MKR is, you get to the “ultimate” restaurant round and it starts to wear a little thin with all the pettiness.
